1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
6 ounces (Legend Brown) beer
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 325°F. All all ingredients except Parmesan cheese to a medium bowl and mix to combine. Spoon mixture into to a small to medium casserole dish and bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring halfway through. Ten minutes before removing, add Parmesan to the top. Return to oven and continue to bake until bubbly and starting to brown. Serve with toasted bread for dipping.
Optional: Stir in diced red bell pepper, onions or spinach to the beer cheese before baking. Top with chopped chives.
